The GOP Will Not Govern
Book Description
An exploration by a Ph.D. historian of the problem that Republican Party officials seek high office, not to govern well, but because they enjoy the perquisites, the prestige, and the opportunity to enrich themselves and their cronies. One of many bad results is that they pursue policy, when they do at all, more in terms of naked self interest than in terms of what is best for the country as a whole.
